@ju5tdance:  I think it’s somewhere around $0.46 in the US, but it’ll probably go up again soon.  Anything over 1 oz is additional postage though.

1st class stamp = 60p/$0.96; 2nd class (slower delivery time) = 50p/$0.80.

@ju5tdance:  the full story is that the price of a stamp bought in a book of 10 or more will be 85 cents. 98% of stamps are currently purchased in books.

Only the price of a stamp purchased one at a time wil be $1.

Canada Post is threatening this to get the public on it’s side while they attempt to cut jobs. Obviously it’s not in their best interest to raise prices that high. They pull this all the time. I wouldn’t panic. What you can do is buy permanent stamps now if you’re really concerned.

@HappySky7:  Just not from Canada Post, as currently they are not selling permanent stamps.

@AB Bride:  Last roll I bought was a roll of permanent stamps. Unless they stopped in the last 3 months. Either way, Canada Post is FOS in general. I would not take their little media theatrics seriously.

The smallest basic postal rate in Ireland (for 50g sent domestic) is €0.60 or 88¢ Canadian / 83¢ U.S. And Ireland is a heck of a lot smaller than Canada. Seriously, like Newfoundland dwarfs it, roughly the size of Indiana for those in the States. An Post is a favourite thing for people to gripe about here.

@AB Bride:  OK just saw on the news that they stopped selling the permanent stamps in light of all of this. Seriously, what dicks.
